Exoprimal Director Confirms It ‘Has No Relationship to Dino Crisis’

This article is over 2 years old and may contain outdated information

While Exoprimal is a Capcom game filled with dinosaurs, it has no ties to Dino Crisis. In a new interview with IGN, Director Takuro Hiraoka talked about the game and its reptilian foes. The dinosaurs were chosen as opponents for an entirely different reason. [Thanks, IGN!]

First, Hiraoka immediately noted that Exoprimal has no ties to Dino Crisis. To be specific, he told IGN that it is “its own unique thing.”

After that, Hiraoka explained why there are dinosaurs as the enemies in Exoprimal. Here’s the full statement.

Once we had established our gameplay concept, dinosaurs were the first idea that came up for the enemies you would face. I thought that it would be fun to experience the threat of history’s most fearsome predators, and that if there were hundreds or thousands of them it would be an intensity that hadn’t been seen before. Once we had that idea, we felt that the only way to face the overwhelming strength and numbers of dinosaurs would be with futuristic technology rather than modern weapons.

People will get to go hands-on with Exoprimal fairly soon. Capcom announced a closed network test in June 2022. The first one will be held on PCs in the United States and Canada on July 10, 2022. There will then be two additional sessions for people worldwide on July 25, 2022 and August 7, 2022.

Exoprimal will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam in 2023.
